to capture that dividend? cnbc contributor ron says it's tough to pull off. ron s this a smart strategy for investors to pursue? what's your take? >> i expect large i traders can do these things more efficiently than individuals. back in the 1980s japanese investors got special treatment for dividend payments. it was well better than what they got for capital gains. they used to engage in strategy called dividend rolling or dividend capture strategies where they would buy the stock one day before it went ex dividend, captured it, sold the stock later. i would suggest that unless you really want to own the stock, particularly some like dish, i wouldn't try to play around with this stuff because don't forget, the stock goes down by the amount of dividend paid out on a particular day. can you get trapped in some of these strategies by being too cute. >> i hate to go against fundamentals. you're cautious about buying those stocks for special dividends. what are the risks? >> have you to remember, the reason you have a special dividend is because there might have been better than expected ea
